it comes in the morning.
before the eyes open,
before the brain can process the new day.
it seeps into the body 
starting from the skin and blood and tissue.
it creeps through every cell.
a second is an hour.
a minute, a year.
every moment that passes it inches closer and closer.
closer. 
and closer. 
to the center. 
to the one place that should be safe.
the Cloud engulfs the safe haven.
the forever untouched.
starting from the brain and then to the heart. 
everything grows from this Stampede,
until nothing is not directly related.
no movement.
no movement desired.
nothing is as vibrant.
as vivacious.
the heart collapses and the tears flow.
and not even the sensation of being pulled apart.
the shredding that takes over my skin
compares to the
Pain
that comes from inside.
